WHAT KIRYA HAS BEEN UP TO

Between You and Maurice Kirya

He writes: “this is what has been going on in my life on my tour in the States.
My driving topic has been to educate the world about Ugandan music, and to represent my country.
Uganda has every reason to be on the international stage, but the world needs to know if Uganda believes it,
or else no one will listen!”

  2. Hehehe.. I remember the article you wrote about him a few years ago, “Waiting for Maurice Kirya to Step Out of His Shadow”
    I guess he stepped out of his shadow and began leaping through cities 🙂

  4. Maurice Kirya recently released his debut album “Misubbaawa”. His music is an uncommon blend of soul, Afro, and R&B that is influenced by the beauty and unique spirit of Uganda, his homeland. He was the 2007 Best R&B Artist winner of the Pearl of Africa Music Awards in Uganda and nominated at the Kisima Awards in Kenya.

    Maurice also runs a monthly show in Kampala, Uganda titled “The Maurice Kirya Experience” which showcases live acts from East Africa and other parts of the world. The show has been credited for boosting the live music scene in Uganda. The show exposes established and non established live musicians and poets on a professional stage.

    Maurice recently made his first American concert performance at the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, Texas USA. He will be featured on the television program “Soundtracks @ Red Kiva” on The Africa Channel.
